James Franco is reportedly in talks to star as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner in the upcoming film Lovelace.
The Milk actor was initially tipped to play male lead Chuck Traynor in the film, about the life of porn star Linda Lovelace.
But according to Variety, James could now be joining cast members Amanda Seyfried (Lovelace) and Peter Sarsgaard (Traynor), and supporting actors Hank Azaria and Chris Noth, for a cameo role as Hefner.
James would apparently be on set for just one day, to film scenes in which magazine mogul Hefner welcomes Lovelace and Traynor to the Playboy Mansion for a screening of Deep Throat, the film that made Lovelace famous, and has a heart-to-heart with her.
Production on the film is now underway.
